Hurricanes, when they happen, are almost always a great way to make a lot of money in a short period of time. But in all my years as a cat IA, I've never seen the kind of fee schedules I was getting in my email from the most random vendors. More than a thousand dollars for a claim with $500 worth of damage? What??!
In this video I talk about the reasons I think this happened and remind everybody that these kind of large-scale damage events don't occur every year and the circumstances that caused these Irma fee schedules are even rarer.
Working adjusters rely on hail to bring home the bacon.
